A massive party in Brampton last night was shut down by police after it got too rowdy. 

Peel police say between 1,500 and 2,000 teenagers showed up at a "mansion party," as it was dubbed on Twitter, on Stanley Carberry Dr, which is near Goreway Dr and Mayfield Rd.

David, a Newstalk 1010 listener, told The Motts this morning that his 17-year-old daughter went to the party. He says there was a cover charge and hired security. 

He says his daughter arrived at about 9:30 p.m. and police showed up within 45 minutes. 

He says that he's already told her that she is to never to go to an event like that again. 

Peel Police were called after receving a noise complaint by one of the neighbours.

Const. Thomas Ruttan says when the first cop car showed up, it became clear they would need back up.

"We did call officers from every division," he said. "I beleive the tactical unit went as well."

But not everyone went without a fight.

"Several officers were assaulted and we did make arrests as a result of that," said Ruttan.

Arrests were also made for public intoxication.

Police say the home where the party took place is currently under construction and say the event caused "significant damage."
